Enticing tech talent to Ireland event sees hundreds attend

The event that took place in London last weekend, was attended by hundreds of people and aimed to entice skilled tech workers to Ireland. 404 London saw leading tech employers including CarTrawler, HubSpot, Indeed Prime, Workday and Zendesk showcase current career opportunities.

The event also featured panel discussions, tech installations and talks by industry leaders.  John Romero, creator of the popular Doom computer game, remained unbeaten in a ‘Doom Deathmatch’ against 20 Doom fans during the event.

404 London was run in partnership with Tech/Life Ireland, a joint initiative of Enterprise Ireland, IDA Ireland and the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation.

Commenting from the event, Jackie Slattery, co-founder of 404, said: “We’ve had hundreds of skilled tech professionals in attendance at 404 London.  These are people interested in moving to Ireland because they know the best tech companies in the world are located there.  They’re also attracted by the work/life balance, well-established tech community and the scope for career progression.  The feedback from participating companies has been fantastic – they were all hugely impressed with attendees’ experience and skills levels.  

“There’s a well-documented shortage of skilled tech professionals in Ireland, so we’re delighted there was such a strong turnout.  This is the first Irish tech recruitment event of its kind – directly connecting Ireland’s tech employers with the large pool of talent available in the UK.”
